referendum web boxOn January 13, 2014, the Green Bay Area Public School District Board of Education approved a total referendum amount of $20 million for the April 1, 2014 election. If approved, these funds would be used towards necessary maintenance projects at Washington and Franklin middle schools, and at Chappell, Nicolet, Fort Howard, and Tank elementary schools.

For information on how the referendum will affect Green Bay families, taxpayers and community members without raising taxes, the public is invited to attend two community forum sessions. The forums will take place on the following dates:
Monday, March 10: 6:30 p.m. in the Franklin Middle School auditorium – 1233 Lore Lane
Wednesday, March 12: 6:30 p.m. in the Washington Middle School auditorium – 314 South Baird Street

Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with school board members and district administrators about the referendum, ask questions, tour the middle schools, and receive informational handouts. Prior to the April 1 vote, the district will continue to inform the Green Bay community about the referendum through its website, mailings and social media.

Don’t forget to vote April 1!
